Aquaponics Father's Day Fish Feast

Happy Father’s Day to all the people that do Father’s Day!

We had JJ’s dad, my uncle and one of my cousins over for lunch. My uncle offered to cook the fish so we pulled 6 trout out of the tanks. I’ve been observing that some of them were pretty big when feeding them, and one of the ones that Tao pulled up was quite large.

While JJ and his dad were cleaning and gutting the fish, 5yo, my uncle, Tali and I went for a walk down to the IGA on a quest to get some soya bean paste. He didn’t find any soya bean paste but came out with black bean sauce. My cousin arrived while we were out and was getting the 10c tour when we returned. They had just finished the cleaning and gutting. The fish were pan fried and my uncle used the juices to make a delicious garlic/ginger/onion/black bean sauce. I forgot to get a photo as I was too busy eating it. It was quite awesome, and so was the company.

And just while we’re on the aquaponics, JJ made a noodle stirfry for dinner using spinach and cabbage from the growbeds. Loving this system.
